6:02 am
we should be around 44 degrees this time of year. we're going to be anywhere from 52 to about 58 degrees, but a cooldown is coming from this cold front. there is also going to be a chance of some showers tomorrow. we're going to talk more about that. first at the bus stop this morning, some patchy fog but turning mild on the ride home. we like that, kevin. 54 degrees. kevin: we do. a nice day on the way. we're looking good on the roadways soor fa. normal delays monday morning. not too bad over the zakim bridge and the leverett connector. a little busy on that tobin loop ramp. they're coming in from chelsea this morning. river roads and airport tunnels are all on time. let's go to the maps up to the north. starting to get busy here up to the north on 93 southbound. slowdowns out of methuen down past 495 and then pockets now most of the way down towards that lower deck. route 3 is getting busier up by 129. so far so good on the upper end of 128. no troubles out to the west. the expressway here pretty much all filled in. about 26 minutes braintree to boston.

6:04 am
president: many americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure. well, here's what i want you to know. the threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it. erika: the president has ordered intelligence leaders to review the fiancee visa program that the female shooter in california used to enter the u.s. he also reiterated calls from broader gun control legislation-- something many in the massachusetts delegation support. emily? emily: this morning many republicans are criticizing the president for not going far enough. g.o.p. presidential front-runner donald trump taking to twitter and posting: "well, obama refused to say (he just can't say it), that we are at war with radical islamic terrorists." his fellow candidate, florida senator marco rubio, reacted on t.v. moments after the speech. rubio: nothing that happened in this speech tonight is going to assuage people's fears. first of all we heard tonight that the same strategy that has
6:05 am
strategy he is going to continue. he honestly believes that there is a coalition fighting against isis. this is absurd. there is no such coalition. a lot of countries that have put their names on to a piece of paper. emily: on his website, texas senator ted cruz said, if elected president, he would, quote, shut down the broken immigration system that is letting jihadists into our country, unquote. randy: a new poll shows for the first time a majority of americans support sending in ground troops to fight isis. the cnn survey shows 53% support that move. the same poll showed that 60% of americans think u.s. military action is going badly right now. that's actually an improvement since october. meanwhile, members of the massachusetts delegation are reiterating their calls for broader gun control legislation. kennedy: we absolutely need to be focused on making sure that dangerous people such as those on the terror watch list don't have easy access to weapons. warren: i can't imagine anyone
6:06 am

6:12 am
holiday time. to date on average we normally have 2.2 inches of snow. last year in boston we had 2.6 inches of snow. and in worcester we already had 7.5 inches of snow. so we're looking for that. unfortunately we can't bring any snow but we can bring some rain showers i think to parts of the area tomorrow. and then again on thursday. it looks like tomorrow it will be really for the cape and the islands although some of them may touch inland. we could really use the rain. we're down almost 10 inches now for the year in boston. down near nine inches for the year in worcester. where is that rain coming from? it's this area of low pressure here that is going to redevelop here off the coast. as it does, it will track close to the cape and the islands, enough to at least give them some rain. also it will bring in some breezy northeast winds which means clouds and cooler temperatures tomorrow. for right now though, we have some low-level clouds out there and some fog in spots. especially in keene. but visibilities have improved
6:13 am
so we're start to go see the fog lift just a touch. as we go through the day, look at these temperatures. mid 50's for highs. yet again. yesterday's high was 59 in boston. we're going to do it all over again. and then tonight we're going to drop back into the 20's and 30's but we are going to bring in more clouds overnight associated with this area of low pressure. we have a dry cold front come today. that will bring in cooler temperatures. and then this area of low pressure brings some rain as early as 8:00 a.m. for the cape and the islands and then pulls on out of here. then we start to see temperatures drop behind it into the 40's for tomorrow. so it is cool out there. and we do have the rain showers around. i do want to show you that on the future cast one more time. notice they could come as far inland as the south shore by about 9:00 or so. continues through lunchtime and then winds down by afternoon. but we will have clouds around pretty much all day tomorrow. the big change will be the drop in temperatures but it doesn't last too long.
6:14 am
50's by next weekend. kevin: up can't complain about this weather. absolutely gorgeous if you're putting up any decorations, the perfect time. the roadways not too bad this morning. looking pretty good out there. no real big troubles. we haven't had any major problems all morning long. just the normal monday morning volume especially here on the expressway. about 30 minutes now to get from braintree right up to the o'neill tunnel. let's go farther south though. you're seeing the slowdowns on 93 north out of randolph get to go the expressway and route 3 now getting reports of a crash down by 228 rockland. more slowdowns derby street up to the split. now 24 brake lights from just about 123. slowdowns about 16 minutes to get up to 128. out to the west, more volume now on the mass pike. stretch. that's just going to work its way into weston. up to the north 93 busy out of methuen. down through that wilmington stretch and then most of the way down after that as you work your way down to medford and
6:15 am
upper end of 128 not too bad although getting busy by walnut street. lynnfield blue line reporting minor delays eastbound due to a disailed train. randy. randy: kevin, thank you. hit-and-run driver. natural gas meter. police are searching for that driver right now. the whole incident could have been a big a witness says he was walking er disaster. his dog just after 1:00 on saturday morning when he saw a pick-up truck speeding down richardson avenue. eric martin says the driver didn't even slow down before the stop sign before he crashed into the faith alliance church. >> when he went across the street and hit the curb, there were sparks everywhere. he went airborne about three feet in the air and then landed. went down the hill. and then hit the church. randy: the truck barely missed the church's electrical transformer. pastor jeff white counting his blessings the damage was not more severe. police are looking for the

neighborhoods first. it's meant to encourage business at restaurants with 30 tables or fewer. there would be limits on how much beer or wine patrons could bring. holiday tipping can be tricky, but etiquette experts are offering some guidelines. randy: these are all rules for people you've seen regularly. the baby-sitter, for example, should get about one evening's pay, plus a small gift from the child. the day care provider should get 20 to 70 bucks, plus a gift from your kids. your hairstylist should get between 20 and 100 dollars, depending on how often you see him or her. and the dog groomer should get a small gift, plus about half the cost of one session. of course there are other categories. just acknowledge the people who help you out during the year. emily: isn't it the thought that counts? randy: that's true, emily. emily: anyway. randy: i don't want to be your u.p.s. guy, i guess. emily: don't worry. santa delivers a special gift to a little girl.
